I am only selling this car because my tastes have changed and currently looking for a 71-72 HP 4 Speed Road Runner. I built this with the highest quality parts available that are OEM or exceeded OEM specs.
There is not one old seal gasket or bearing in this car. Only that has to be done is the sheet metal/body work! This car is drivable, rides like a new car. Power Steering gear box leaks on the top seal but the power
steering feels like new. New wiring front to tail from M&H Electric.
Car was built in St Louis on May 25 1970, it came from Eastern Shore, Va and I am the 3rd Owner. Car only has 144k original miles.

Body has not been touched, except for the firewall was stripped and primed. Will need trunk floor, quarter panels and tail panel section, front frame rails are pretty good, very tail of the rear frame rails are crusty but still solid.
They possibly could be salvaged. Floor pans are solid minus a spot on the front driver side pan. Car is solid for its age and abuse. THE CAR IS NOT TWISTED, WARPED, AND IS VERY STRAIGHT. Body of
course has its dents and dings. New Windshield and gasket! NEW Magnum 500s and New BF Goodrich T/As!
